    Default Fishing the park July 10-13

    Will be in the area for the first time this year and planning on some early morning fishing each day, until about noon. It is a family getaway, so I can't go daylight to dark. I am wondering where I should try this time of year and what flies I need to have. I will be staying at the Jellystone Campground on 321 so I am sure I will hit Greenbriar at least one morning. Just trying to get a general idea. Thanks.

    See the thread about the maps of Little pigeon, download one of the maps and print it, it will give you a good idea of what is close and accessable for you for your timeline.
    Remember if you get up early and hit the stream right at daybreak you can fish for 5-6 hours before lunch, find the right spots and you could easily see 40-60 fish or more in that time.
    Which then leaves the rest of the day for the family.
    Thats what I do, both in the smokies and at the beach

    You may want to check out the Cosby area as well since you will be in the vicinity if you want to catch some specs.

    Thumbs up Wrn

    I agree with Cosby, but get up 30 minutes earlier and drive into the park just around five miles from Sugarlands and you can fish the area above the Chimneys picnic area. Could catch all three species.

    Chimneys is a good spot.
    Use a Mr. Rapidan, Royal Wulff, Adams probably 14-16 dry, prince nymph.
    These all worked really good last week and probably will be good then too, is my guess we use those same patterns most of the summer here in the Shenandaoh National Park and they work well.

    Is that the stream that runs through the campground? If so, a few years ago I fished it right by our tent and caught several little 'bows and one small brown.

    I believe so, I was trying to find the trailhead there in May, but I didn't go into the campground and couldn't find access to it. There is a trail to the east of the creek, and there should be brookies up in the park.
